The President of the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GHAMRO), Rex Owusu Marfo, best known as Rex Omar has revealed that people have been threatening him since he opened up his stance as a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Rex Omar was interviewed by Agyemang Prempeh on the ‘Legends’ show and he indicated that ever since he declared his stance in politics, he has been receiving hate and death threats.
He said: “I’ve got a lot of hate but I don’t care. A lot of threats but I don’t care. It’s a lot but I think that I’m not the only person or last to receive such treatment. I’ve got a lot of life-threatening messages and calls; saying, we will come for you”.
The musician added that through his career as a performer and a musician he has been attacked many times due to his political affiliation.
“I can tell you that even as a musician, there was a particular show that I had to perform at. After preparing, an NPP minister calls to say if I’m the one to perform then the show should be canceled”.
